I’m really excited about my book launching soon and I’ve started to think about publication and distribution.
Since this is my first book, I’m thinking about selling the book with Amazon KDP Select.
This means I can sell my book on all global Amazon sites but I can’t sell my book anywhere including on my own site.
For this exclusivity, I will get a chance to do special promo’s and price reductions.
Added to that, Amazon clearly has a huge advantage with the access it has to millions of readers.
That’s why for my first book I’m thinking about going exclusively with Amazon.
My book is still being formatted and once the file is ready, I can upload this to Amazon’s platform.
If you have more than 5 books, it’s probably worth going wide which means distributing on other platforms other than Amazon i.e Kobo, Nook etc.
For now, I will see how it goes with Amazon. I have a soft launch planned for the end of this month. More details to follow soon!
